I have to design a program that uses Basic Math class. With the following functions and imput commands Add (Add), Substract (Sub), Multiply (Mult), Divide (Div), Exponents, ie. 2^3 (Exp), and Factorial, ie. 3! (Fact).

So far I have this, i just can't figure out how to add the functions.

* Basic Math class

import java.io.*;

class basicMath
private static String instructions = "Enter the (imput command) followed by " +
"the numbers, Z = X imput command Y.\n";

public static void main (String[] argv)
int X, Command, Y;
int Z;

System.out.println (instructions);
System.out.println ("Enter X: ");
X = getN();
System.out.println ("Command: ");
Command = getN();
System.out.println ("Enter Y: ");
Y = getN();
System.out.println ("Result is: ");


static int Comman (int Add, int Sub, int Mult, int Div)

int commanOut;

if (Add)
commanOut = X += Y;
return (commanOut);

private static int getN ()
int inputInt = 1;
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader (System.in));
String inStr;
inStr = in.readLine ();
inputInt = Integer.parseInt(inStr);
catch (IOException e)
System.out.println ("Could not read input.");
catch (NumberFormatException e)
System.out.println ("Entry must be a number.");
return (inputInt);


PLEASE HELP, I am getting really frustrated, i have to finish by wednesday. And my mind just can't handle it.

Anythings helps
